Summary: My 7 year old son likes this game but apparently he doesnt love it. Im not sure if its because its not as exciting as his other video games or because its too difficultt for him and he can't accomplish missions to advance in the game.
Summary: Product: Star Wars, The Force Unleashed I Rating: 3/5 (good) I'm a longtime Star Wars fan. I've seen all six movies during their original theatrical runs, and I'm a past vet of the RPG. I like the genre. That said, this game has some significant flaws that need to be mentioned. Likes: * UNIVERSE: The chief selling point of this game is the Star Wars universe itself. Star Wars enjoys the same foolproof safety net as pizza and nookie ...
Summary: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (SW:TFU) at launch probably was one of the most hyped games of the year and fell flat on its face for multiple reasons. Everything from glitches, game breaking bugs, messed up auto saves, combos that wouldn't trigger and unlockables that magically relocked themselves(yet couldn't be collected again on your save file). At $20(what i paid for a copy) and all the patching this game is safe to purchase 'technically'.
Summary: After playing the Force Unleashed on the ps3 with it's amazing graphics and amazing story and amazing everything I decided that maby it would be cool on the wii since you have a lightsaber and you have the motion sensors so it sounds like it would be really ausome right? No......It's not. First of all you lose the amazing graphics and the amazing ability to kick ass. But that's not the problem. The problem is the system itself. The Wii can't handle this kind of game yet.
Summary: Game story was excellent. However, the game suffers greatly from constant glitches. Seems like production was rushed before gameplay could be smoothed out. CGI cut scenes seemed chopy and far outdated. Playing as a Jedi/Sith is very fun, but game felt more like an old PS2 or Xbox title than a next generation action game.
Summary: "Star Wars: The Force Unleashed" had the potential to be a great game: incredible graphics, interesting story, and the whole Star Wars universe to work with. While the game comes out looking fantastic, it's ruined by horrible playability. Simply put: this game is what I have always feared RPG games would be. The camera has a hard time following you; I died numerous times simply because the camera shifted to where both the Apprentice AND his opponent weren't on-screen.
Summary: The graphics for this game are great.The story is good enough to keep most interested.I love just going thru and killing and destroying everyone and just about everything.The down side to this game are the force powers.Sometimes when you want to fire your force lightning or grab a object,the targeting system sometimes aims for the wrong target or grabs the wrong object.This gets very annoying quickly.Sometimes the camera angles are not the best.You can be walking or...
Summary: This game was a well made game. The linear story was fine. It used the George Lucas method of writing, that starts with an existing outline, that the writers have to fill. So we have the comedy relief robot. The just met love interest. We have all of the talking points that are the same in every one of the movies. It disappoints me that creative freedom is so controlled.
Summary: I only paid 20$ for this game and I'm glad that was the price. The game offers a very unique sub-story to the already over-saturated Star Wars Universe. It was very enjoyable to have the ability to use the force. The stages had their pro and cons. Some certain stages had an annoying issue of poor design. Characters would often fall into cracks and holes thereby ending the game.
Summary: I first played Star Wars: The Force Unleashed as a demo on the Playstation Network Store and I thought it was pretty good. Albeit, the controls were a bit strange & cumbersome but overall not too bad. Plus I figured with a few more months until launch the issues would likely be ironed out. Well, I was wrong. But more on that in a bit. First I'll touch on what I actually like about the game.
